Mike Buck, 66, of Mt. Perry, went to meet the Lord whom he recently received into his heart on Sunday May 19, 2019. He was born on June 19, 1952 in Mason, West Virginia, a son of the late Fred and Marie Buck. He is survived by his wife Betsy (Beegle) Buck whom he married July 14, 1973. One son Mickey Buck. Two grandchildren whom he cherished McKenna and Caleb. One brother Fred (Allison) Buck. One sister Sandy (Jeff) McFarland. His brothers and sisters-in-law John (Frieda) Beegle, Carol (Scott) Locke, Jim (Sandy) Beegle, Patty (Jeff) Jenkins, Mary (Tom) Lanning, Amy (Troy) Fitz, and Jenny (Mike) Fisher. Mike graduated from Zanesville High School in 1970 and retired from Ohio Cat where he worked as a diesel mechanic for 35 plus years. He enjoyed bringing back to life old vehicles and there wasn’t a challenge that he couldn’t conquer. He will be remembered for his integrity, work ethic, resourcefulness, sense of humor, and his never give up attitude. He also liked “potato chips, moonlight and motor trips.”
